Gordon Russell

John & Louise Cropper 33

Although trained as a furniture maker as well as a designer Gordon Russell now spend his time solely designing, drawing his inspiration, he tells me, from the sensuality of the female form. The making facility at Detail was closed in 1996 and it is now done by carefully chosen makers in their own workshops.

Gordon’s company is aptly named because it is the constantly monitoring of the minutiae to produce the quality he wants that is all- important to him.
